Re: Workarounds: Seeing where a doc sits in the Binder?

Yes, that was the problem I was having! I thought there was a way to reveal only the single doc I am editing and not the whole Scrivenings session, and you have reminded me. "Reveal in Binder" from the header bar behaves differently than "Reveal in Binder" in the Menu. Thank you,...

Re: Workarounds: Seeing where a doc sits in the Binder?

Hi mbbntu (Martin), thank you, I do use that command which reveals in the Binder all of the documents in a scrivenings session. However, I want to reveal the one and only particular document that I am editing. I want to go to the heart of the matter. I want to ask the Binder a simple question: Which...

Workarounds: Seeing where a doc sits in the Binder?

Hi everyone, I am asking for help in knowing where I am in the Binder. Without creating any ire from the esteemed developers of Scrivener as to why we cannot edit a doc and have the Binder show specifically where that doc lies inside of our projects (I understand the whole philosophy behind Scrivene...

Sorry Keith, don't have a lot of support info for a crash

Hi Keith, I was working on my project under 10.7.4. and Scrivener 2.3 (19120) on a MacBook Air. I was moving documents between folders, nary a problem in the past. Then I got a beach ball that didn't go away for five minutes, so I force-quit Scrivener. [I haven't had to commit that act of violence i...

Re: Scapple Beta - New Users Please Read

Hi Keith, Scapple is great. I like the functions you added to the alpha version, but most importantly you kept the application clean and simple. Here are some minor observations: 1. I don't really understand what the Distribute function does. I'm sure I'm missing something clever :D 2. I instinctive...

undo edits of doc titles?

Is there a way to undo edits of document titles in Scrivener 2.3? Ctl-z doesn't do the trick. (For example, I'm locked in place with several documents in composition mode, I'm showing the titles in scrivenings mode, I change one of the titles, and now I want to undo that change of title.) I found Ke...

Re: Vellum for Mac (previously "TheBoard") - feedback wanted

Happy new year Keith and everyone. As I wrote earlier, I'm enjoying Vellum a lot. Finding it very useful for jostling my ideas around. I had written myself into a corner. Instead of starting new documents or folders in Scrivener, a big blank board outside of the Binder is just what I needed. This al...

Re: Vellum for Mac (previously "TheBoard") - feedback wanted

Hi Keith, Am I ever glad I found this forum thread! :D An hour ago, with just a .zip and a click, I launched an aesthetically simple and clean place to juggle ideas! Using Vellum's big board, I have been exploring alternative arrangements of documents in my current Scrivener project. My setup: I'm w...

Re: Feedback on Group Scrivenings mode for structured writing

Thanks for clarifying that Keith. I do like the better integration of Scrivener 2.0. I have already taken good advantage of how simple it is to display the same binder selection in three different formats (outline, corkboard and text editor). Let me ask you, if I may, whether there is a way to skim ...

Hello, OK, here's one last update to finish off this topic with the lesson I learned . I've now spent the last hour studying up on Collections. I now realize that even though I had gone through the tutorial last week, I am an example of "a little knowledge is a dangerous thing." :twisted: ...

Re: How do I exclude documents from Scrivenings?

Hmmm... When I built a Collection and then used cmd-opt-R to reveal the Collection items in the Binder, I ran into two problems. I've reported these in the Bug Forum: http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=9643 Don't know whether these troubles are machine-specific or whethe...
